Springtime in Greenland (1981)
Springtime in Greenland uses ‘50s cinematic conventions to tell a story about the sophomoric inhabitants of a fictional utopia. Meet Nick. He’s silent, aloof and straining against suburban values.

Oak, Ivy and Other Dead Elms (1982)
Nick, the silent hero, sets off for college where he becomes involved in an attempt to restore the old campus hangout and in a dirty and hard-fought student election. The film weaves the tone of ‘40s college movies with a clever spoof of current electoral trends, suggesting how easily old fashioned ethics turn into fascism.

The International Style (1984)
An amusing melange of 60's spy thrillers and other classics. Super secret agent Nick attempts to liberate a top secret microchip from the clutches of multimillionaire Quinton Frost. Paizs pokes fun at the jet set, the Cold War and Jean-Paul Sartre.
